Bottle 300 ml, poured into a snifter. First bock of the season. ABV 6.5%
Nice red/bron colour, with two fingers of off-white colour with average retention. Light lacing left on the glass when swirled.
Aroma of caramel, spices, red sweet wine.
Nice taste, light roasted malts and very fruity, with some spices in it, like cinammon, or maybe not, it reminds me of a sweet I used to eat as a kid but can’t really zero in.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Overall quite good. Bryanvdv (523) - - OCT 6, 2013
Drinked @ bokken en happen. Mooi donker bier met minimale schuimkraag. Zoetig biertje met licht bittere nasmaak. dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2013
The aftertaste is the nicest thing about this beer. Baked potatoes with onions and mayonaise. Caramel too. I didn’t know what to expect reading the other reviews but I am enjoying this.

This wasn’t really nice. After La CHouffe Bok I expected a better bock beer now. But still not sweet enough. It smelled a little sweet (a little raisin). But it tasted really bitter. The color is darkbrown and the head staid really small.
This bockbeer also didn’t impress me. (next week i will still have 8 more to go. So I’ll hope there will be better ones! kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2013
The head is medium, the body is brown. It smells sugary-bitter, malty. The taste is malty, aromatic a bit alcoholic, bitter. Medium. 11/9/8/9/10/9 MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tanned head. Earthy aroma, full put malts, cookies, some cinnamon and other spices. Very full flavored, rich malty sweetness, some alcoholic touches but again very spiced and easy to drink. Medium bodied, medium carbo. Very decent. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
